time to admit something publicly

my wife has been very good to me

she has allowed me to obtain ( among other lenses and equipment ) :

two of the " * " lenses discussed here

SMC DA * 300mm F4 ED (IF ) SDM
HD Pentax-D FA* 70-200mm F2.8 ED DC AW

as well as the prime DA Limited Lenses

SMC Pentax-DA 15mm F4 ED AL Limited
SMC Pentax-DA 21mm F3.2 Limited
SMC Pentax-DA 35mm F2.8 Macro Limited
SMC Pentax-DA 40mm F2.8 Limited
SMC Pentax-DA 70mm F2.4 Limited

her one consistent rule: " you bought it, you haul it "

I have had the pleasure of using/owning the following...

DA * 55mm - yes awesome lens worthy of the Star name... Handed up/down to my pa for all he has done for me when the DFA * 50mm arrived. I consider myself a nice son! It is awesome for his pair of K3-IIís. In my dads kit...

DA * 300mm - oh heck yes... World class lens that has delivered time and time again it truly is a Star. It has performed awesome even for wildlife for me. I have yet to exercise it well on FF, but I am looking forward to it. In my kit...

DFA * 50mm - might be my favorite piece of glass ever... Turns the K1-II into a world beating camera/lens combo. This combo takes on the best from Sony, Canon and Nikon and lives up to the Star series name. In my kit...

DFA * 70-200 - lives up to the Star series as well... Sharp across the frame wide open, quick focusing and built like a tank. Again lives up to the best from Sony, Canon or Nikon when mounted on crop or the K1-II. In my kit...

FA * 400 - what an awesome lens, that I have had the pleasure of using a few times. My pa over the years has gotten some incredible photos both film (PZ1-p/ZX-5n) and digital with his K10D/K100D and now his pair of K3-IIís... It is one lens I truly lust after in his kit. If Pentax ever does a prime DFA * 400, I will be all over it! In my dads kit...
